First Class Changes at Alaska

The Tacoma, Washington News Tribune is reporting that Alaska Airlines plans to keep first class seating on its aircraft.

Rumor has it that Alaska plans to revise the first class upgrade benefit that currently allows MVP Gold (top tier) members to upgrade any fare at the time of booking, subject to availability. This is likely to change to apply only to higher fares. Elites on discount fares will probably have to wait until closer to flight time to confirm a first class seat.
